BoatLeathers is not a them but a him--a one man band. If he's out sailing it may be awhile before he gets back to you but, when he's in residence, he's very good about doing so and he will respond to your inquiry. For the sake of the discussion, why is the wheel
cover the wrong size? Did you mis-measure or simply rely on him to supply a cover matching covers previously sold for the same boat? If the latter, it is not uncommon for prior owners to have changed boat wheels. I did so on our prior boat, to a much larger diameter wheel
then came as standard equipment
. N'any case "them/him/he" us usually pretty good about returns/exchanges unless the cover has been damaged by mishandling.
